I have a scene with a five-second animation that spans across ten tracks. There are many key frames on those tracks. I want to be able to change the length of the whole animation to three seconds. Is there any (easy) way to change the length so all of the components (tracks, key frames, etc) that make up the animation adjust proportionally to a new length?
You could put a trigger on the timeline and speed up by a percentage required to get it down to 3 seconds.
Thank you for the reply. There is also a one-shot audio track on the animation as well. Would speeding up the animation affect the playback speed of the audio too (I want the audio to remain as is)?
I was hoping there's a way to select all of the tracks and then select the right side of one of the tracks (where it turns into a double-ended arrow) and simply squeeze / stretch the length to make the adjustment. I take it there's nothing like that or a way to edit the frame number values for the keyframe positions, track lengths, etc to make the change?
you'll need to do each one, you can scale time
Thanks again for the quick reply! I'm not in front of Xpression right now, but I couldn't tell when I did that earlier if the keyframes were scaling as well. Do you know if they will or will I have to do some math and manually set them again?
the keyframes will more accordingly.
